Some time ago, I showed you a very interesting "Scandal" polish. You can read my post about it and look at its swatches there.
I found more information about this brand so I wanted to share this with you.
Also, I'll swatch soon 2 other Scandal polishes I bought. You can already have a look at the bottles. The dark green seems gorgeous! I can't wait to try it.
|Scandal nail polishes Green Pearl - Mirage Pink - Dynamic Pink.|
So these polishes are from the Korean brand "Scandal". It's a cosmetic brand that sells all kind of cosmetics (make up, body care, nail care and polishes).
The first time I saw these lovely bottles of nail polish, I thought they were an imitation of Nfu Oh because the bottles are so alike. By the way, I did a bottle comparison in my post about Mirage Pink. So I thought their quality might be not that good. But I was totally wrong. The 3 polishes I have are a really dream! The application is great and the color, texture and finish of each polish is just breathtaking.
So I searched the net for more information and found some pictures of their main polishes. They have 4 different categories of polishes (the gold, silver and black lines are all corset-bottles and a another one with a more conventional bottle shape). I don't really know why there is a gold, silver and black line...When I bought mine in Seoul, the seller just told me the price was different according to the cap color...this is true for the Korean websites but on international websites that sell Scandal polishes, all gold, silver and black are the same price (btw more expensive than the Korean websites).
The different polishes
I lent the pictures from http://www.dr-angus.co.kr and http://www.kissnail.co.kr. You can also buy polishes from them but as these sites are in Korean it might be a little difficult and I don't know if they sell internationally (the 2nd don't, I haven't checked for dr-angus). But I'll give you another link in 5 sec.
I found the following info on http://www.kissnail.co.kr (again it's just in Korean....and my Korean skills are limited so I apologize if there are some mistakes...but it should be all right :p).
Scandal nail polishes contain: butyl acetate, ethyacetate, nitrocellulose, phtalicanhydride/trimellitic anhydride/glycols stearalkonium hectorite, silicadi methyl skyliate, dipropylene glycol dibenzoate, benzophenone-1, ethyl, alcool, citric acid, mica, bismuth oxychloride, aluminium lake, tocopheryl acetate.
These ingredients are for the 4th line of polishes (more conventional bottle shape). For the others, there are special ingredients (coral powder, rose hip oil).
Bottle size: 15 mL.
They also claim they have a special fabrication process that is called "micro high dispersion (MHD)". This system allows them to have high shine and high quality polishes.
They also use a "Sucrose Polish Agent" that makes it easier to have a uniform layer of polish and a higher stabiliy of the polish solution. It also increases the brightness of the color film.
They also use some coral powder that contains magnesium, calcium and potassium salts that protect and give you healthy nails.
Finally their polishes also contain rose hip oil. This oil is supposed to have beneficial effects on the skin. It improves skin quality and appearance for example. This oil as a high content of unsaturated essential fatty acids, namely linoleic acid (47%), linolenic acid (33%). These fatty acids help to nourish and maintain a healthy skin. Rose hip oil is also supposed to strengthen and moisturize the nails, and stimulate their growth if you massage them with the pure oil.
All Scandal polishes are formaldehyde, toluene and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) free.
